12 Superchargers & 24 Cylinder Detroit Diesel "Big Mike" Engine
This wicked beast dyno'd at 3,425 hp! Weight is 9,800lb. This is a V24 Detroit Diesel two-stroke (normally used to power ships), which is two V12 Detroits joined together nose to nose with splined cranks. It adds up to 1,704 ci. It's ridiculous, on a grand scale. And that's why it's cool.
Mike Harrah introduced this V24-71 Detroit Diesel "Big Mike" engine. This monster of a semi engine is supposedly rated at over 3,000hp and uses 12 - 871 blowers and this guy is spraying nitrous to get the job done.
The engine is 10 feet long, 46 inches wide, and 57 inches tall without the blowers, and with the Allison transmission, the whole thing weighs 9,800 pounds. If you're into the metric system, the displacement is 27.9 liters.
